Taste profile from the winemaker: None found. This wine is not listed on the winemaker's website.

ABC Wines review: A light straw in color, this white wine blend has aromas of citrus and bell pepper. There is not much fruit flavor on the palate, rather the taste is primarily of stone and minerals, and is almost chalky. The finish is moderately long though has an odd, somewhat bitter aftertaste. Our score: Not a terrible wine but certainly not a terrific one either. On the low, very low, side of Average.

Winery website: Vini La Delizie (in Italian, English, and German). No image of the bottle could be found. The image displayed is similar in style to the wine reviewed.

I really should have checked this stuff out before I bought it. You're right: It's "not terrific" but you are maybe being a bit generous when you also say it's "not...terrible."

I'll say this: It doesn't have much taste. But the taste it has isn't good.

I haven't yet finished my first glass (for good reason) and I already have a headache!
